So glad this place is surviving the pandemic! Outdoor set up gets the job done just as well as the inside.

The food was perfect; best pizza, clams oreganate, veal parm and sorrentina and saltimboca, and they did a great birthday cake for us.

Mario’s is consistently outstanding among Arthur Avenue restaurants! Last night for the first time we tried their Spiedini appetizer & the stracciatella soup and both were perfection! The bracciole is consistent & their shrimp francese and chicken scarpariello are great. The staff is warm and welcoming from the hostess to the bus person.
I highly recommend Mario’s! 5 STARS!!!

Our waiter was excellent, and I really liked the old-world, family atmosphere. The food was just okay though. Like one appetizer would be REALLY good but then the other not good at all. Stick to simple dishes, and you'll be okay!

Mario's is a great old-school Italian restaurant. We've been going there for years, and the food is always consistent and delicious. Saltimbocca is fantastic. Best calamari fritti we've had in a long time. We opted for indoor seating and were pleasantly surprised. Calm and quiet. Servers were taking both indoor and outdoor tables so a bit of a lag at first, but he made up for it later.

Love the history with service and a welcoming attitude that could not have been better. Just somewhat of an average meal. Veal not nearly as tender as it should have been with the sauce sublime. The shrimp bland but properly cooked. Simply expected a little more

Good side: best fried calamari ever

Other...main meal: sausage overcooked/tasted reheated.

Cappuccino automatically made with sweetner (what Italian does that?) No apologies or courtesy given.

Won't go back. Too many other great AA restaurants

We visit Marios often because it is simply the best Italian food that we can find ! The service is always excellent and the food outstanding . We sat outdoors as it was a beautiful night and were also treated to some live acapella singing by a small group of performers . It was wonderful .

We had a wonderful time ! Everything was great from the service to our meals. We had 3 different things , a pasta , a veal and a chicken dish and they were all outstanding . As a pasta person , I particularly loved how you could build your own pasta dish including picking the type of pasta and how you wanted it prepared .
Definitely recommend !

Always a fun place to visit on Arthur Avenue. Tasty, traditional Italian food served by attentive waiters in an old fashioned restaurant. Neapolitan Cod was excellent.

We dined at Mario’s to celebrate a birthday! They made us feel very special. We dined outside and the ambiance was great. The adult food was outstanding. Just slightly disappointed in the kids meals…too much food for my kids and way too pricey for spaghetti. Plus they added Italian spices which turned off my kids. Sometimes it easier just to serve simple items to kids. ;) but that might just be us! Would definitely go back and just order one adult meal for my kids to share. :)

We were a party of 6. We all loved everything. The waiter was very attentive and there was plenty if Staff to assist. We had the appetizer sampler and a calamari plate both was amazing.
Everyone had a different dinner and no one was dissapointed. Then the desserts topped off the meal.

Amazing Italian food. We had the special pasta with seafood it was extraordinary. My guest wanted it with a different sauce no problem they were happy to accomadate whatever she wanted. The ambiance is 1950's Bronx. It is like being in a Scorsese film. The food is to die for. The service was so warm and welcoming like being with family. Very large portions. The pasta dish was enough for two. In fact it would have made a nice appetizer for four. My only regret was that we did not order the pizza.

Spiedini was awesome, food was otherwise mediocre (linguine vongole, spaghetti pesto, rapini, string beans, others I'm forgetting). Service was solid. Food came out quick for our 3 year old, which is great, but we sat at 445 and didn't finish paying check until 7. No matter how busy you are, needs to be faster than 30+ minutes between courses. Fine for what it is, not in a hurry to return.
